Seventh stage of the cycling circuit. Trail running entirely through the borough of Mieres
Summary Alto la Colladiella - La Peña

The seventh stage of the GR-208 Central Mountains Cycling Circuit starts at Alto la Colladiella. After crossing the AS-337 road, follow the Cabañón Greenway up a dirt road that leads to a downhill stretch along a concrete track between Pontaos and Alto de la Mozqueta (aka Alto La Faya). You then cross the LA-7 secondary road and take the track up to the high meadows of Ablaneo and Urbiés. Just before you get there, a scenic balcony offers views of the magnificent Samuño Valley, belonging to the borough of Langreo.

The trail then runs for a while along a flat track it shares with the PR-44, above the surroundings of the Urbiés Range, until reaching Panda Peak. You skirt this peak to then take an uphill fork, instead of the PR-34 fork, which also shares the trail and heads for San Xusto.

The GR-208 heads up towards Cogullu Peak, although the path always runs below the borough boundary line on the slope belonging to the borough of Mieres. At La Violar, turn right and take a track that leads below Felechosa, Mata Porrín and Espines Peaks, where the Cycling Circuit continues down the Rebullu Range to the village of El Cau.

You take the MI-11 road straight down from El Cau to Alto de Santu Miano. Cross the road here with caution and then take the path on the other side along which the PR-44 Langreo Circuit Path runs. At Domingo Moro, the GR-208 turns left (leaving the aforementioned Langreo PR) towards L'Acía, which you skirt from above, without entering the hamlet. You then take a path that goes around Borrón del Corralón to then head uphill towards Collado Muezca col, leading to the base of Campón Peak.

From here, a winding path with ups and downs leads to La Teyerona Recreational Area where you take the concrete road that runs along the side of La Peña towards the village of La Matiná. You leave this village via the first turning which heads downhill along stretches of the Camino Real road, which crosses the La Matiná Range, along some rather technical stretches of the trail. These are short stretches that will soon lead you to the village of Les Casetes (Requintín), from where you then head downhill without stopping along tarmacked roads to La Peña, whose sports facilities you reach at the end of the stage.
